Korean Team Prints Layers 1/1000 as Thick as a Hair

A team at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) has a developed a printing technology that could be used for sensors and displays.

KAIST’s nano-printing system can deposit thin layers – just 10µm – onto flexible and curved objects. Associate professor of materials science, Jung Yeon-sik, said that the work could contribute to the mass-production of electronic sensors and displays, as it can significantly lower printing costs.

Commercialisation in chip and sensor factories will be possible within the next three years, said Jung.
